Rural Design are committed to a progressive yet sensitive rural architecture. We respond to each client with imagination to deliver a project that achieves social, economical and environmental sustainability. Our approach combines practicality and intuition to achieve overall design excellence. Based on the Isle of Skye in the West Highlands of Scotland we are working on residential, commercial, community and education projects throughout Scotland and occasionally abroad.
Our portfolio of work emphasises the diversity of design skills we can offer, from new build and furniture design to landscape and masterplanning. We consciously avoid a prescriptive style, with each project being based upon a rigorous analysis of the clients requirements, the site and the landscape context. Our work is characterised by a crisp and contemporary approach; however it is always grounded by an understanding of history and a respect for the environment.
A key element of our approach is sustainable and innovative design. Our collective knowledge, skills and experience, accumulated over years of practice, allow us to continuously seek improvements in the design and services we offer and to seek innovative design solutions in line with our clients' expectations. Rural Design combines the best qualities of a small innovative practice with the experience, depth and knowledge of a large office, enabling it to undertake advanced and complex projects.
We approach each project with the same guiding view, a unique proposition that requires a unique solution.
